a couple of days ago the news was Munich’s initiative to promote among its citizens Lubuntu as an alternative to Windows XP , today we learned that is not the only European administration to move in the same direction. Monaco, these city-state famous for its royalty, its casinos, racing and generally train their high life-talk about one of the most opaque tax havens of Europe will do the same: Lubuntu for all (for all they want, that is).
As indicated in LFFL
, Monaco has had a recent approach to administrative level and LibreOffice Lubuntu and experience went well. So much so that the next step is to promote the system among citizens. Thus, following the example of Munich, will launch a campaign in which give away CDs and brochures with information on installing useful, tips etc..
Undoubtedly, both are positive news should set an example for many governments and Spanish municipalities, those who walk supurando deficit and avoiding bankruptcy based social cuts of all kinds, but still fat and stagnant like poor Gregor Samsa die before renewing their licenses proprietary software religiously-well, not always religiously and signing agreements that keep them chained to the detriment of all citizens are supposed to represent. Because the important thing here is not to promote Open Source alternatives among the people, which is fine, but the administrations lead change, especially for his own good.
But, this is not a political blog, so we stayed with what we want, the streak that has Lubuntu as a standard against obsolescence. Why upgrade your equipment so you can move any new Windows, if perhaps with Lubuntu is left? That’s it. If I may, just need to decide as to maintain an LTS version , and they will not have a better opportunity to the next.
